From Schreiners Iris catalog, 1937: ANDALUSIAN BLUE. We believe that intermediate iris, which bloom from tulip-time to the tallbearded season, deserve a great deal more attention than the public has given them. It can readily be imagined how desirable it would be to have over two weeks of bloom added to the glory we now enjoy. Improvements on this frontier of iris development are not rapid, however, because of inherent difficulties involved in crossing the dwarfs and the tall bearded sorts. In Andalusian Blue (Sensation x Petit Daniel) we have secured a color previously unknown in the intermediate section: a fine sky-blue similar to Sensation, which variety it also resembles in form, texture, and branching. We are releasing only a few roots of this variety this season and will be interested in hearing reports of their performance in other sections of the country. Price, each $5.00.
